Angela Prentner Smith, who identifies in the neuro minority said:

“I’m thrilled to be attending this event to learn more about the prevalence of dyslexia, autism, ADHD, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, and speech and language difficulties in business which often start at school. I’ll also be taking to the stage to share my personal and professional experiences to discuss creativity, entrepreneurship and neurodiversity.”

In an era of rapid technological advancements and cultural shifts, where emerging technologies like artificial intelligence are transforming our lives and work, the importance of being responsive, adaptable, and innovative has never been greater. The ‘Neurodiversity – A New Paradigm’ Conference recognizes the value and profitability that diversity brings to commerce, culture, and the workforce.

Leading companies of the 21st Century, including Google, Microsoft, Apple, IBM, and Sony, as well as bioengineering, bioscience, and engineering industries, have demonstrated that their success is, in large part, due to actively recruiting employees who ‘Think Differently’.

Research reveals that over 40% of millionaires are dyslexic, and over 30% of risk-taking entrepreneurs, business owners, and senior executives have been diagnosed with ADHD or dyslexia, or both. Notably, graduates with ADHD are twice as likely to start their own businesses.

The ‘Neurodiversity – A New Paradigm’ International Conference promises to be an enlightening and transformative event. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in insightful discussions, exchange ideas, and collaborate on shaping a future that embraces and celebrates neurodiversity.
